UPDATE: GREAT NEWS! RILEY'S TEAR PRODUCTION HAS INCREASED WITH THE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDY WE'RE GIVING HER! My name is Riley and I am a pure bred Min Pin and a very special girl. I am sweet, lovable and cuddly. That makes me special, but so do my eyes. Can I tell you about them? My first owners used me for breeding. Even though I made them a lot of money, they didn't want to spend any of it taking care of me. I have a chronic condition known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), or simply Dry Eye. Can you imagine trying to blink your eyes with no lubrication? Well I had to do that for the first three years of my life, and as you can imagine, it was very painful. My eyes got scarred from that, and now I am slightly vision impaired. When I was first brought to a shelter, my eyes were terribly inflamed, had bright pink ulcers all over them and they were even bleeding! It was terrible. But you can see from my pictures that my eyes are in great shape now. That makes me so happy and I feel wonderful. My foster mom takes such good care of me. I love her. I can see well enough to run around and play with my foster siblings. I love to be outdoors going for walks or hiking. I even love to go kayaking! Anyway, back to my eyes. What my eyes need to keep looking as beautiful as they do now, is eye drops. Yup, that's it. Just eye drops. And I am so very good about having them put in, it only takes a few seconds to do it. So why have I been waiting so patiently for over a year for my very own home? It is because the eye drops are very expensive and I need someone special who is willing to be as committed to me as I will be to them. I need these drops put in my eyes several times a day for the rest of my life, because I will never produce the tears I need to lubricate my eyes. The wonderful people at SAVE A DOG have saved me from living a life of pain and are committed to finding me the perfect forever home. But they need help to pay for my ongoing expenses. You see, the drops cost $85 per month! That is a lot of money for a non-profit shelter to spend on one little dog. And they have a lot of dogs to care for. Plus, I have to go to the eye specialist to get my eyes checked, and that is expensive too. But SAVE A DOG knows I am worth every penny, because I really am so special. Will you help SAVE A DOG to save me by donating to my eye care? Oh, and if you know anyone looking for the most adorable cuddle bug ever, tell them to ask for me, Riley the Magnificent Min Pin! Thank You So Much. Love, Riley. I will also be shown by appointment. Please apply for this sweetie at
